Mason, Ohio: Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray and Roger Federer won their opening matches at the Western & Southern Open in straight sets Wednesday, getting accustomed to the heat after spending the last two weeks in London and Canada.
Djokovic got the bronze medal at the Olympics in London, then won the Rogers Cup in Toronto on Sunday night. He was a little off in his opening set on a court baked in sunshine and 86-degree heat, before pulling away from Andreas Seppi of Italy 7-6 (4), 6-2.
"Sometimes it's really hard to try to stay fit for every single tournament and try to perform your best," Djokovic said. "I mean, in the last three, four weeks, I have changed three different cities, places, surfaces, conditions. I'm still trying to figure out where I am."
